This dude at my work has been wanting to race me since I bought my car. He has a green and gold aniversery mustang GT (I thnk its the 50th but Im not sure, Ive never paid much atention to ford). Be both got off work early and decided to have some fun on Jeferson ave. Our first time was a rolling start at 40mph and he took me. Then we got to a red light. I got a good launch and took him by a car length or 2. Next light I took him again but only by about 1/2 of a car. Third light, I took him by about 4-5 cars but he was still spinning when I was ready to shift into second. Forth light, I was ahead by about 1/2 a car when he just droped out. I figured it was a cop so I slowed down but I wasnt fast enough. I got my first MI ticket. :eek: after that I got on I94 and at around 696 I saw this blueish/purplish Focus SVT coming on me pritty quick. I was in the left lane and didnt feel like getting anouther ticket so I got out of his way. Instead of passing me he got even, gave me "the look", and then a :Thumbsdown: After that he dropped it into forth. I dropped into forth to a stayed with him, then I floored it. Poor kid never had a chance. Once I got about 3 car lengths up, he got in the right lane and never tried to catch up. All and all, Id say it was a good day. :clap:

ehhhhhhhh.....you mustang guys are all the same. You all think that the mustang is the fastest car in the world.


lol....j/k. I love the 2000 mustang body styles so much. But good story anyway. Those SVT's don't hold a candle to the old RL.

You sir, are a trooper.
I didnt want to race again but when the guy looked at my car and gave it a thumbs down, I had to put him in his place. People can talk shit about there car all day long but once they insult mine, its on. :mad:

Well, I must admit that after the driver gave you a thumbs down, putting the Ford Fuckus in its place was a necessity. :D

Now I drive a focus and when I pull up to another car I make sure I look at the badging or other signs that it's a RL. I would never give a thumbs down. I love all the performance cars out their. I would like to play with one on the road even though I know I'd get spanked. I would like to apologize for the focus drivers attitude towrds you.

Mine is debadged. You'd have to know the rims on the RL to know that mine is one. ;)

I did it so people who got beat by me would have to wonder even more what the hell just happened. :D

Sorry in advance to all those Ford fans out there........I am damn glad I have somthing that'll spank GTs. I am a DIE hard Chevy boy, so when GM came up with the RL, it was done......Now not only will my 83 Chevy K-5 beat the hell out of Mustangs, so will my wee little Saturn

It still dosen't matter around here. I have a bright red one, with the big spoiler, the badges, and the ground effects. People still assume it's a dressed up Saturn coupe with nothing under the hood. I could put a banner around the car that says 'THIS CAR HAS A SUPERCHARGER! COME GET SOME!', and I would still get someone in a rusted out civic from 1985 revving at me in traffic.
hahahahahahahahahaha

Thanks for making me laugh at work...that is definately the truth :D

I took all the badges off mine exept the saturn one on the hood. Except for the ground effects, you cant tell I have a redline. No need to apoligize, the captain for the team Im on has a Focus SVT, Running all your bolt ons + a 50 shot. He's a quike HB

What year GT's are u speaking of?? Anything 99 and newer u are not gonna spank with a stock RL. Might have some close races with autos or bad stick drivers but certantly not spank. JMOP

I too have done this... too many times, as I will not have an insurance company as of April 1st :( they dropped me... I think it was mostly because of the the accident I had with my 2004 SRT-4... Rolled it 5 times... then decided to get something a little more scaled down... my redline.

I think the only differences between the 40th anniversary and the 50th anniversary is the amount of times they've broken down :p hehe Sorry GM guy here ;)
